The Pennsylvania Department of Health responded this week to pro-lifers’ calls to investigate Planned Parenthood.
“… there is no evidence that any Planned Parenthood site in this commonwealth is involved in the buying or selling of fetal tissue,” wrote State Secretary of Health Karen Murphy in a letter publicized by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Instead, the Pennsylvania sites contract with medical waste vendors to dispose the aborted babies’ bodies, according to Murphy’s letter.
Pro-lifers asked Pennsylvania officials to investigate the abortion giant after a series of undercover videos call into question whether it illegally profits off the sale of aborted babies’ body parts. Other states and two federal Congressional committees also are doing investigations.
Planned Parenthood aborts more preborn babies than any other group in Pennsylvania and the U.S. That’s more than 17,000 babies a year in Pennsylvania and more than 330,000 preborn babies in the U.S., dead at the hands of Planned Parenthood.
Whether Planned Parenthood’s Pennsylvania affiliates are selling aborted babies’ body parts or not, it’s important to remember: They are making a profit killing babies in the womb. And that’s a tragedy we all should be working to end.
